Thats great Ron
Have had a go on the Tyme Cub before i borrowed one from Dave Roberts to do a small demo a while back, it is a very nice lathe i am sure you will get some great use out of it.
Is it for your club to use or for visiting demonstrators ? either way look forward to more pictures of work produced by your club.

Thread: Eggstra special

They all look like some cracking pieces (no pun intended) The winning piece is it the one  on the right or the hinged one at the back ?
Some great pieces and i am glad to see your club is off to a flying start.
Thread: AUCTION!!!!!!!

Completely agree Alan
I think we should do this sort of thing more often, i would be happy to donate more work rather than let it gather dust here or just give it to family. especially if it would help charities.!

I would pick something a bit quicker to grow, I always used to have a Eucaliptus tree in my garden, 5 - 8 years and you would have a trunk about 8 - 10" diameter 4 - 5'  long !
Or a Cornish palm will grow quite well too, never got round to cutting that one down befor i moved, would love to get hold of some it has a very striking grain !
Just need to water and stop the better half pinching out the top "so it wont grow too tall"  She prefers a shorter more bushy tree.

Thread: Bargain Glue Gun
06/04/2010 22:41:09
Thanks George
I have considered a couple of the more expensive ones, but I am a little bit stuck when it comes to the cost of what i buy, ( there never seems to be enough ) and wood is often at the top of the finance list.
Funny you say that about the glue sticks i thought they only came in 2 sizes but they do seem a little looser in one gun than the other but both take the 11mm stick ?
should be out there at the end of the week if nothing else crops up so will let you know how it works.
Thread: dennis's segmented turning's
04/04/2010 23:16:27
Thats the way to do it, if you can get the wood prepared ready for you thats half the battle won, and you are doing a great job with the other half !
Mind if i point out one thing that will improve your work ? try to line the segments up top to bottom when gluing them up, and talking of gluing them up i like your jig you have in your album, briliant idea there
Thread: Segmented Bowl By Dennis
04/04/2010 23:11:44
Very nice Dennis
Some great colour in the bowl and a good finish to it too, well done
Thread: Bargain Glue Gun
04/04/2010 23:07:15
Yes Marc
Thats the one i have, i had one before that did that too a Lidle one & its painfull when you get burnt by the glue especially trying to get it off,  still like you say i can always get a replacement if it goes wrong ?
I was down your way today, well near, spent the day at Marwell Zoo Photographing the animals, its amazing how much wood is wasted at the zoo, some realy nice burrs just sitting in the pens so the animals can scratch there claws ? waste really.

Lets hope so George,
At least the glue gun looks a good value tool this time will see next week how it works, its got a duel heat control on it but i expect it will be on the hot setting for all i do with it, and  it gets up to temperature in about 3 - 5 minutes apparently, so thats quite good too.
